In that article, Fallon wrote about the Blue Unicorn Cafe (coffeehouse) (located at 1927 Hayes Street in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco), using the term hippie to refer to the new generation of beatniks who had moved from North Beach into the Haight-Ashbury district.[18][19] New York Times editor and usage writer Theodore M. Bernstein said the paper changed the spelling from hippy to hippie to avoid the ambiguous description of clothing as hippy fashions"

    I always thought Grace Slick was the quintessential hippie chick. Not only that, she survived the period, and is now pushing 80 with all her faculties intact. Amazing what the human brain can withstand, innit?

    She is a warrior, but I don't like the idea that she was doing acid while pregnant. Not cool.

    some members refer to you as "she"

    You noticed.

    Surely then you also notice their sexist obliviousness, in perceiving that I would be insulted by a purposeful misgendering. That is, knowing that I am a man, they perceive that I should be insulted to be referred to as a woman.

    To do so sheds a great deal more light onto to their sexist worldview than it says anything about me. And so I submit to you, your "progressives."

    It also reveals why the content I've added to this thread is in fact necessary and edifying. These blokes are blind to their own chauvinism.

    what did you think "Me Too" was so popular among liberals because they care? of course not... the President is the precise reason ME TOO has gained any celebrity support, they think they can do what Hillary failed to do, turn the next election into a little miss manners contest.

    I don't suppose this will surprise anyone here... but you are truly an idjit.

    '... knowing that I am a man'. I know nothing of the sort. What would inspire you to make such obviously incorrect assertion? I call you 'she' because that's how I perceive you. If you want to be referred to otherwise... feel free to make the request. Directly. Without the sniveling and lying and unfounded allegations.

    And that's just ONE example.

    Pfffft... back on ignore you go.

    Mmm, acid doesn't do what (most? many?) non users think it does.. I'd even go so far as to say it was (can be) beneficial. 'Bad trips' are the result of the users head-space, not (just) the acid. Grace's head-space was cool.

    just sayin'..

    "Little Miss Manners"? We should never concede to having good manners.
    "Manners" are not important these days.

    Rape, pillage, and pervert is the norm for the party of "family values".

    Parsing "family values" today seems to lead us to misogynism, wife beating, rape, sexual predators, and etc.

    I'd ID you as a cheeseball marketer, and hang up immediately.

    When I was a hippie, we all used to go down to the creek and skinny dip on a regular basis. Before the orgies.

    I gather for the most part they've stopped doing that. Hard to get jobs as baristas that way.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    did you know that in San Francisco individuals in the country Illegally and arrested for Assault can not leagally be reported to ICE by local law enforcement

    Assault? No Problem for sanctuary city liberals... so why should any one care?

    I never did acid and don't know anyone personally who did. Marijuana, a little hash, and a lot of beer were the things floating around my buddies and I back in the day. That all stopped when I married my wife (who is a former FBI agent and would never have done anything illegal like that), except the beer, and that pretty much came to a halt when we started having kids. I still drink a couple every so often as long as I can do it and drive, or if I don't have to drive, a few more.

    Seems like the big thing around Mobile in those days was heroin, and I never did it. But the music that generation produced? Awesome, man. Just awesome, some of that stuff, and of course, I am still locked into the stuff from around 1972. I guess it truly does stick with you, the stuff that was happening when you first became aware of it all, and in 1972 I was 14 years old and trying to make sense of everything.

    How can the music from the early 70's be so good when the cars they built were crap, the houses built then have mostly fallen down, and the clothes? 'Whew' on the clothes. Maybe a lot more people were doing acid than were willing to admit it?

    When I was a lad I had a full beard and hair halfway down my back and never thought anything of it. Then one day the wife of a friend of mine told me that she thought I was cute, but that all she saw when she looked at me was hair. I had never given it a bit of thought, but after that started getting my hair cut more than once a year.

    You used to care a whole lot, SB, about concealing your gender. Struck me as odd, as it does when others do it too. You may notice that I've never written a post directed at you which uses a pronoun, as it was never clear which to use. Seems I missed your big reveal.

    What pronoun would you now prefer I used?

    Yes, and that is a good thing - for anyone could charge even you Daniel with assault.
    Note that "arrested for assault" is not the same or even close to convicted of assault. But hey, if you can skip the due process and eliminate someone you don't like, Why Not?

    There are no words. Well maybe, Ritalin...

    I was gently reprimanded by a woman whom I like a lot and respect, for referring to the women who compete at the Highland Games as "chicks". I asked around, and while most of the women I asked told me that they wouldn't get all pissed off at it, the term was pretty passe and somewhat derogatory, now.

    So I stopped using it. The thing is, I'm responsible for what *I* do.... not what other people do.

    There’s a great video on her YouTube Channel where she cuts the dreads off.
